i have an 80gb based games family board, im currently using a 120gb sata hard drive, i have had it running on a 1tb sata drive as well.

for sata drives you will need and ide to sata converter, i cloned mine using the built in clone that comes with the games family board, it is accessed by turning on switch 4 on dip switch set 2, then connect the drive you want to back up to to the 2nd ide port on the games family main board, power on the games family board and press player 2 start, this will start the ghost backup program clone the drive and power off the board once done.

you will then need to follow below guide to edit the registry to enable large disk support. i plugged my drive into a usb to sata cable to do it, if you dont enable large disk support and try to boot of your backup drive most times you will get a blue screen error and it wont load into the games family menu.

LMDE: middle click with two-finger tap on touchpad —

In Linux Mint the default action when tapping the touchpad with two fingers is a right click. How can I change this to middle click?

If you’re using an synaptics touchpad, you can use synclient to fine-tune the config.

Use following commands for middleclick on 2 fingers and right on 3 fingers:

synclient TapButton2=2
synclient TapButton3=3

The problem: you have to use these commands after each startup, so you should put them in an startup script.
